God uses unlikely people! (Joshua 2)

Posted on Updated on

Rahab is a known prostitute from Jericho.  But she expresses belief in what God is about to do for His people (vs9-11) and so she acts kindly towards the spies.

Looking back at this moment in the story of redemption Hebrews 11:31 says that as a result of her faith, God included her in His big story of the redemption.

As we read on, Rahab is not only going to be saved from the coming destruction of Jericho, but God redeems her life by giving her a son Boaz, and both Boaz and Rahab receive the honour of being included ultimately the in line of Jesus’ ancestors and Rahab included in the list of the heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11!

All through the Scriptures there are unlikely characters like Rahab, people others would write-off, who believe God and so God redeems them and includes them in His plans and purposes.

Do you feel like an unlikely person?

Someone God wouldn’t use, someone others would overlook?

What matters is faith in God, believing God for who He is, for what He has done and has promised to do.  God loves faith and God is so ready to include you in His big story of redemption that’s still being written.

So believe God, trust Him and act accordingly.
